I've been using Vixia hfm300 for several years. But it's been a few months. Last night I recorded a video. I can play it on the vixia, so I know it's there. But when I insert the memory card into my laptop, I don't see any material.
(Actually, at first I did see old material. I deleted it, thinking the card might be full. But that didn't help, even with brand new material.)
Can you help please?

There is no software. The way it has always worked is like this: I record video on the Vixia, then remove the memory card and insert it into my MacBook Pro. The computer recognizes the card. And when I click on it, I see the video files that I have recorded. It's this last step that's not happening.
When the card is inserted into the MacBook Pro, when you say the computer recognizes the card, I'm assuming it mounts on your destkop. For example:
When you open a Finder window and display the card's contents, what do you see? For example, the following is what I see when mounting an SD card from my Vixia HF G50:
Not seeing how to reply to rs-eos.
When I open Finder, yes I can see the card. But the folders are empty.
However, I just discovered that when I double-click on AVCHD I can access the clips and then export them as .mov.
This is not how the Vixia used to work.
I have screen shots, but don't see how to post them.
Including images is easy! When composing your message, click the "Insert/Edit Image" icon at the top of the text box. It's near the center of the formatting options ribbon and it's a square with a pair of mountain peaks in it. Click on it and you'll get more instructions.
Hope that helps!
